Suzanne Baker biography:
Suzanne Baker’s love of the California Sierras and the ranchers who live amongst them stems from a youth spent in their shadows. Raised in Three Rivers, a tourist town in the Sierra foothills, Baker dreamed of becoming a horse trainer and of spending her days exploring the mountains.
As a girl, Baker saved enough money to buy a horse and saddle and may very well have carried out her plan to become a trainer had it not been for the influence of two artists in her life.
The first, her mother, was a talented painter who instilled in her children a love of the arts. The second was a watercolorist, her teacher’s husband, who took Baker along with his family on painting trips into the Sierras.
Her budding fascination with art soon blossomed and after high school, Baker enrolled in art and architecture classes at the California Poly Tech in San Luis Obispo. Baker worked as a pack guide to pay for classes.
Baker married Gordon, a classmate, and the two raised a family together, never straying far from her beloved mountains. Suzanne took up painting in earnest and spent years perfecting her style. As she matured artistically, Baker found fulfillment bringing her passions together as she filled her
canvases with scenes of ranch life among the Sierras.
